The Difference Between Caregiver and Companion Services: “A Caregiver is hands-on care. That’s for a senior who has progressed their aging journey to the point where they may need some hands-on care with Dressing, and toileting. Whereas companion services, we are oftentimes, the 1st step that a family may take, or a senior may take when they’re understanding, okay, I wanna age independently and I need a little bit of help to do it, and so companion services are just that.”— Mikey Newton
